Perma.cc helps you to preserve the online sources you cite and to make those records accessible to your readers.

It is developed and maintained by the Harvard Library Innovation Lab at the Harvard Law School Library. UIS acts as a Perma.cc registrar, which means we have the authority to create organisational accounts that are able to preserve an unlimited number of records.
 

Features and benefits

  • Register via UIS in order to be able to archive an unlimited number of web pages and cite them in your publications.
  • Share a communal link archive within a research group or department.
  • Make it possible for readers of your publication to view web sources exactly as they were at the time you collected them for citation.
  • Avoid link rot.
  • Archive is hosted by a consortium of libraries giving confidence of long-term preservation.
  • The service is free.
